Give permission to Local User or Guest User.

This post determines how we can give the permission to the local user or guest user. Sometimes when we want to perform any operation on our computer like saving a file, deleting a file, renaming a file, moving a file and many other operations then a warning message pops-up on the screen that is ACCESS DENIED or any other message like Contact the administrator to obtain the permission.

To allow this kind of permission this post is discussed.

Generally when we perform the operations on C (where all the windows file store and software are install)  drive then this kind of warning message pops-up not on any other drive. But why ? Because this drive contains all the system file which is accessible only to the administrator not by other users.

The Windows operating system helps protect files, applications, and other resources from unauthorized use through a process of matching user accounts and group membership against the rights, privileges, and permissions associated with those accounts and group memberships. The topics in this section will show you how to assign or set privileges and permissions. In addition, understanding privileges and permissions, why they are necessary, and how they function can help you manage shared resources effectively. Understanding these processes can also help you avoid unnecessary risks and troubleshoot any access control problems you might encounter.
